DYLAN MURPHY, the guitarist, singer, and songwriter best known as a member of Steven Sharpe’s band The Broke Straight Boys, is to launch his debut solo EP.
Dylan, whose sound draws on blues and grunge, launches the Tell No One Your Goals EP at Citóg in the Róisín Dubh on Wednesday February 11 at 9pm.
Dylan’s EP has a strong blues swing and strut, particularly on opening track, ‘Midnight Sun Blues’. A rootsier, darker take on the form is heard on the very impressive ‘See My Strings’, with Dylan - bluesman growl unleashed - showing his dextrous abilities on acoustic guitar. A passionate grunge fan, that music’s skuzzy, gritty, tone underpins Dylan’s riff to the EP’s close ‘Nothing Left To Burn’.

Admission is free. Support is from Galway singer-songwriter Eoin Dolan.
